Netgear DG834PN ADSL ROUTER AND HUB - PC dial-up connection
Until I moved house I connected my home network to the internet via the Netgear DG834PN ASDL router. I now have no ADSL on my phone line and I want to connect via shared dial-up on my computer and untilmately via an Orange Mobile modem connected to a USB port on my laptop. Problem is when I share my dial-up connection access to the Netgear DG834PN fails and I get IP address confict message. I have tried changing the Netgear DG834PN router address from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.12 but the same problem occurs. Any ideas? Thanks Chris

a POTs (plain old telephone) line should never be connected to a router. that adsl filter does not make a phone line share a data line.
ADSL is a type of internet service supplied over a phone line. think of it as raw (unusable) when its on the phone line. then you use your dsl filter/splitter to feed the raw internet into a special dsl modem and the other port can be used by a standard phone.
you will know a dsl modem when you see it because its uplink or internet port will only be big enough to fit a phone cord into, not an internet cord. these dsl modems then feed usable internet to your routers and all devices on your network. but, like i said before, at this point it is too late for your phone and internet to share the same wire.
OK, thats not entirely true
pin out of RJ45 internet
1,2,3+6 are used in a typical network
if your network is typical you can "get fancy" and use 4,5,7+8 for telephone or even put 2 data lines on the same wire (not recommended for long distances). however, this may involve cutting some wires and splicing them together or something.
The NetGear DG834G is an ADSL router.
If you an ADSL internet connection, it should connect via PPPoE autentication.
This means that you must configure the username and password, on the router, provived by your internet service provider.
Please read the "Installing Your Router Using the Smart Wizard" section on the router's manual here ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/DG834Gv5_SM_31Mar08.pdf and follow the steps.
If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.
This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem.
2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem.
3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router:
'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces'4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled.5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID.6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key. ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.
With Vista on the Laptop it should be just a matter of double clicking the router in the network settings, vista should automatically configure the connection.
This has happened to me before and this is what I did just to see if it worked, and it did flawlessly.
If I understand you correctly you currently have a computer connected directly to your ADSL Internet connection and it can connect to the Internet. When you disconnect the computer, connect the DG834G router to the Internet connection and then connect the computer to the router you loose the Internet connection.
It sounds like a ?simple? case of the router not being configured correctly. What I would suggest is to reset the router to its default configuration and follow the installation instructions again from the start. I?m not a big fan of the software configuration wizards that these home routers come with BUT they are the best way to easily configure the typical installation.
To reset the router: in-between the 4 Ethernet LAN ports and the ADSL port there is a small reset button. Press and hold the reset button until the test LED turn on (about 10 seconds). Release the button and wait for the router to reboot.
Let us know if this works or not. If you still have problems the more details and error messages you can supply the better.
